We love our horses! They are incredible animals with an amazing job. When horses come here, they receive exceptional care including vet, farrier, dental, chiropractic, theraplate, and massage therapy as needed. 

JoyRide is always looking for special horses to add to the herd.  Potential horses are extensively screened to insure they possess the qualities necessary to be a therapy horse.  Therapy horses must be extremely calm, unflappable, sound and enjoy people.  We love and depend on our wonderful horses, so you can be sure any horse that joins our herd will receive the highest quality of care possible and lots of hugs and kisses!  To inquire about a horse donation or lease, contact Paige, the Equine Trainer at Volunteer@joyridecenter.org.
